Gridview sort reloads original page

Hello Experts,

I have a GridView, with sorting and paging enabled.

The GridView is bound in code-behind, where I also have the sorting
and paging event handlers.

Both sorting and paging seem to be working fine, but the problem is,
if I click on a page index, the sorting order is reversed. To make it
clear, suppose my GridView has 4 pages like below:

Page 1:

A
B
C

Page 2:

D
E
F

Page3:

G
H
I

Page 4:

J
K
L

If I click on the table header, the data gets sorted, fine, like so:

Page 1:

L
K
J

But, if I then click on the page index 2, I see this:

Page 2:

D
E
F

Whereas, I am expecting to see this:

Page 2:

I
H
G

See the problem? How to overcome this?

I'm using vb.net Thanks.

Gina

hi
this is depend on how you are doing the sorting
i will show a sample code here that i use


sub LoadUSERS()
dim dt as new datatable
    dt =   FindUsers()'a function that return a dt





            Dim dv As DataView = dt.DefaultView
            If Not ViewState("SortColumn") Is Nothing Then
                dv.Sort = (ViewState("SortColumn").ToString() + ViewState("SortDir").ToString()).ToString()
            End If

          

            GridView1.DataSource = dv
            GridView1.DataBind()
end sub

  Sub Sort(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim LinkButton1 As LinkButton = CType(sender, LinkButton)
        ViewState("SortColumn") = LinkButton1.ID.Substring(3).ToString
        ChangeSortDir()

        '  If ViewState("Type") Is Nothing Then ViewState("Type") = 1
        LoadUsers()
        'If ViewState("Type") = 1 Then
        '    LoadUsers() '1 means view all
        'Else
        '    If ViewState("Type") = 2 Then
        '        LoadUsers() '2 means search users
        '    Else
        '        LoadUsers() '3 means search directorate
        '    End If
        'End If

    End Sub

    Protected Sub ChangeSortDir()
        If ViewState("SortDir") Is Nothing Then
            ViewState("SortDir") = " ASC"
        Else
            If ViewState("SortDir").ToString() = " ASC" Then
                ViewState("SortDir") = " DESC"
            Else
                ViewState("SortDir") = " ASC"
            End If
        End If

    End Sub
